The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley, the latest novel from American author Hannah Tinti, is the story of a father trying to protect his daughter from the legacy of his criminal past.
For as long as she can remember, Loo and her father Hawley have been on the move from one town to the next.
But they have finally settled in a small fishing town in Massachusetts, hopefully for good.
The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley is published by Tinder Press. I produced this interview for Books and Arts on ABC RN, and you can hear it here.
